We bought four new roses in total...these are two of them and the other two, well one was missing a label and the other is call Darcey Bussell, she is the deep Crimson one
they all smell lovely and have taken well to being put in the planters.
! A new love seat a early present from husband and the children has arrived too, but it is too wet to put it together outside!!!
Cucumbers are being picked every couple of days or so...they are thriving in the front porch
The quilt blocks are still awaiting to be finished still...no mojo to do it at the moment....usual ups and downs in life putting a spanner in the works... Looking forward to the school holidays.....the kids are tired too and asking how many days until the holidays begin.
A lady at craft group has suggested I start a ETSY shop.....not sure if it is easy/straight forward enough....????if anyone has started a shop I would appreciate hearing about it and any advice you have.... I have loads I could de stash for sure!!!!
I have picked up a couple of vintage handmade quilts too..... One is very heavy and I am not sure what it is filled with...so before I clean it I need to unpick it a bit and see if it needs dry cleaning rather than washing... Will show next time.
Well extremely unhelpful advice and criticism by mother in law to little miss during her Easter visit has totally demoralised my sweetheart on the sewing machine front. Little miss has lost all her confidence and I am patiently trying to coax her back to sewing again. I wouldn't mind but my mother in law hasn't used a sewing machine for over 60 years and makes nothing.......
On a happier note some little finds .....
a strawberry mini dish
I have stuck magnets under this dish now and it makes a cute pin dish
could not resist this cheeky chap
I have a few blue glass dishes
that belonged to my nan and this
caught my eye so...
They are repairing the lane outside the house tonight so
we may have to play "musical beds "
later and retire to the back of the house
as I imagine it will be noisey and lots
We are told the work starts at 6pm and is expected to
Carry on until the early hours!!!
on that cheerful note ..until next time
